My husband had a serious heart attack recently and was taken by ambulance to Leighton hospital where he was left without pain relief for over two hours ,he was literally crying out in pain but none of the medical staff seemed to care or even believe he was having a heart attack until the blood results proofed that he was. Both myself and my husband had told them several times ,and since my husband had already experienced the pain of a heart attack he knew the pain only too well but the arrogance of medical staff is beyond belief .His daughter is a staff nurse and knows the seriousness of pain relief to heart attack patients if not given quickly can damage the heart further . It's a shame as it was the only time I've ever been inside this hospital
